On the Road With the 2023 Nissan Rogue SV

The average American spends 27.6 minutes commuting to work each way; that adds up to 276 minutes per week and 14,352 minutes per year, or about 239.2 hours per year, or very nearly TEN DAYS per year—and that’s the average. Depending on where you live, your commute could be even longer. (The editor of this article wants it to be known that his commute thus comprises 20 days, i.e. 5.5% of his year. He is currently sobbing.)

For many of us, that commute is done independently—which isn’t all that bad—but if you’re going to be sitting in a car for that long, you want to make sure your car has enough great amenities to make the trip as enjoyable as possible. With the 2023 Nissan Rogue SV, you get excellent fuel efficiency, premium comfort, and a wide range of safety features; when you add all that together, spending almost 240 hours trapped in your car every year is easier to stomach. (Or 480 hours, if you’re the editor of this article. Again, he sobs.)

Furthermore, you gain support from one of the industry’s leading automakers with a long history of dependability and passion for creating vehicles that make driving easier and more fun. In the 1990s, Nissan launched its biggest marketing campaign, “Enjoy the Ride;” today, although they’ve moved on to other marketing strategies, their push for you to ‘enjoy the ride’ is still evident in every vehicle they make.

Breaking Down Fuel Efficiency

The 2023 Nissan Rogue SV offers a standard 1.5L DOHC 12-valve Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) three-cylinder engine. The VC-Turbo part of the equation means this engine is capable of switching between focusing on fuel efficiency—by using a high compression ratio—or boosting performance with a low compression ratio. Either way, you get up to 37 MPG on the highway, which is impressive. That rating might be affected by which mode (Sport or Eco) you choose, as well as your option to include Nissan’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.

The Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system gives you the best of both worlds with the control of four-wheel drive combined with the efficiency and performance of two-wheel drive. Furthermore, this system enhances traction control by continuously adjusting to the road, providing stability and security regardless of road conditions.

Enjoy the Comfort of the Rogue SV

Having to commute is one thing. Having to commute in a vehicle with less than enjoyable seating is another. Luckily, with the 2023 Nissan Rogue SV, you don’t have to worry about comfort.

With a seamless connection to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, the available Wi-Fi Hotspot, and a built-in assistant with Amazon Alexa, your Nissan Rogue will keep you in the loop the whole way there and back again. Plus, you can control everything you need with a simple touch of a button thanks to Nissan’s intuitive touchscreen interface.

Cabin-wise, the available eight-way power driver’s seat offers two options for lumbar support, adding assistance when and where you need it. Your co-pilot will enjoy a four-way power seat, which ain’t too shabby. In addition, the driver’s seat’s memory feature gives you the ability to save your preferred seat and outside mirror positions; this is perfect if someone else also drives your car, as the Rogue will readjust to your preferences when you’re behind the wheel.

When choosing the 2023 Rogue SV, you can also opt for the SV Premium Package, which gives you heated front seats, a power liftgate, Prima-Tex leatherette seating trim, a dual-panel panoramic moonroof, roof rails, and more. For a more rugged exterior, you can choose the Midnight Edition Package, which is new for 2023; this package offers 18-inch black aluminum alloy wheels, black detailing on the grille and mirrors, plus TailorFit leatherette seating trim to increase your comfort even more.

Safety Features and ProPILOT Assist

Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist safety suite works with Intelligent Cruise Control and Steering Assist to help bring your vehicle to a full stop while you’re using cruise control and then get you back up to speed when traffic resumes flowing. This system uses sensors at the front of your vehicle to adjust for traffic in front of you, recognizing lane markers and measuring the distance between you and the next vehicle.

ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link improves the driving experience by using onboard navigation to assess the road you’re traveling on and provide speed adjustment for increased safety and stability. For instance, it might reduce your speed on off-ramps or ahead of curves while quickly getting you back to your previous speed when the road straightens again. Nissan utilizes various cameras, radar technology, and sonar systems to offer additional available safety features as well…

Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection: This tool assesses the road ahead and alerts you to objects in your path with audible and visual cues. If you’re unable to stop in time, it also applies the brakes to help prevent a potential collision.

Intelligent Lane Intervention: This tool uses cameras to detect the differences in lane lines and alerts you when you sway too far in one direction. You will hear and see the warning on your dash, giving you time to react and get centered again. This tool can also apply the brakes if needed.

Blind Spot Warning: Even after checking the mirrors, there are still blind spots in every vehicle; this tool lets you know when something is in a hard-to-see spot while you attempt to change lanes or merge.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert: Helping you navigate while in reverse is the goal of this tool; it gives you added protection in rear areas where your vision is impacted by other vehicles or environmental factors.

Intelligent Driver Alertness: After a long day, or when you need to get up earlier than normal, you might not be as focused as you should be when behind the wheel; this tool detects if your attention span seems to waver, prompting you to take a break and recharge.

Traffic Sign Recognition: This tool is essential when traveling in new areas. It alerts you to conditional changes, including speed, and allows you to adjust your driving if needed. If your vehicle is equipped with this tool, you will see its alerts on your Multi-Information Display.

These are just a few of the safety features you might find on the 2023 Nissan Rogue SV, adding up to a drive that’s not only comfortable while saving you money at the gas station but also effortlessly helpful in getting you from point A to point B.
